The main point in the game of life is to have fun. We are afraid to have fun because somehow that makes life too easy.

re: Quotable Quotes Part 6

Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shuts our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy and strength, if we faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.

~ Henry Miller


Quoted in A Mood Apart:

"Come, come, it's only the passions that make you think."

re: Quotable Quotes Part 6

"Fear is a universal experience. Even the smallest insect feels it. We wade in the tidal pools and put our finger near the soft, open bodies of sea anemones and they close up. Everything spontaneously does that. It's not a terrible thing that we feel fear when faced with the unknown. It is part of being alive, something we all share. We react against the possibility of loneliness, of death, of not having anything to hold on to. Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth."

~ Pema Chödrön, When Things Fall Apart


If you are having a bad day, get another one and get it quick!

~ Rissie Harris


“As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world … as in being able to remake ourselves.”

~ Gandhi

Whatever increases, decreases, limits or extends the body's power of action, increases decreases, limits, or extends the mind's power of action. And whatever increases, decreases, limits, or extends the mind's power of action, also increases, decreases, limits, or extends the body's power of action.
- Spinoza (1632-1677)

"I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive." ~ Joseph Campbell

"If you deliberately set out to be less than you are capable of becoming, you will be deeply unhappy for the rest of your life." ~ Abraham Maslow

"Destiny is as destiny does. If you believe you have no control, then you have no control." ~ Wess Roberts

"Ultimately, of course, every outer purpose is doomed to "fail" sooner or later, simply because it is subject to the law of impermanence of all things. The sooner you realize that your outer purpose cannot give you lasting fulfillment, the better. When you have seen the limitations of your outer purpose, you give up your unrealistic expectation that it should make you happy, and you make it subservient to your inner purpose." ~ Eckhart Tolle

"
The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are." ~ Joseph Campbell
